I don't know if I would necessarily recommend this audiobook, however the performance of the book by Derren (and of course written by him) means you get a unique perspective on the story. Whilst he doesn't go though how to perform Hypnosis, he does go though the basics of how and why it works the way it does.
I think if you're either a Derren Brown fan, or interested in Hypnosis, this audiobook is for you. It certainly gives an interesting insight into how Derren, an actual stage performer uses hypnotism. If you're looking for a quick way and verbatim script on how to hypnotise someone, this audiobook isn't really for you, but having said that, Derren does lay down some basics, but doesn't give you a blow by blow on how to Hypnotise a person (or people).
There wasn't one single thing that you could love best about
The best part about this story is having experienced and remembered some of the public events and seeing the story from a new point of view (ie. Google's) and going
I can't say that a single character performed by L. J. Ganser was my favourite, as there were many colurful and inspiring figures in the book which I believe the reader captures quite well. When listening to the audiobook, sometimes you can actually feel like you're standing in the room and observing the figureheads go toe to toe with their arguments.
Overall this is a great book and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who's interested in the internet and the way Google works and performs as it's an excellent insight into the way Google has evolved since the beginning. I am a little disappointed that they didn't go into detail of how, say YouTube functioned, but it is interesting listening to the fan fare around the other products like Wave, or other things that have come out of the Google Labs.
